Standing figurines  (Symbols & Figurines)

Next set is a bit an exception as it has cardboard figurines that should be inserted in slots in the board such that they stand upright. Note that in the pictures the pieces are placed on the board in the wrong way. One day I may make new pictures with pieces standing correctly (thus with white square bottom right).

There is a wallet where insertable standing figurines can be put in the board that raises up when the wallet is opened. See the Wallets page.

  • Germany
  • ca. 1942
  • Cardboard pieces K 4.9; p 2.9
  • Box 24.0×12.5×1.8
  • Cardboard board 23.3×23.1

Very similar to above set, but half the size. Could have been made by same manufacturer and then it is probably older than 1960's-1980's. Actually, origin is unknown.
